compromising. an additional medicare tax and a compromise where you recognize the cost savings potentials, recognize the priorities of the president but at the same time move towards the house by having more progressive revenue raising other taxes like the medicare tax or a small millionaire's tax. >> ifill: what about that, josh bivens? >> some sort of compromise could be useful here. >> ifill: like what? >> i mean, one, have the senate bill move a little bit toward the house. but if you want to do some kind of cost sharing i think you have to actually target excessive benefits. i don't think the excise tax does it. one can imagine a way of constructing a thax that goes after plans that are generous in terms of actual generosity of coverage. >> ifill: what is an excessive benefit. >> that's a big problem too. one person's excessive benefits is another person's insulation from risk. you have people, you know, i'm enough of an economist to believe that people trade-off wages for these health insurance benefits. they've voted with their feet. they clearly value these benefits. excessive is

elderly people may face a tax on a certain medicare program that they now have and that this could actually end up hurting lower income seniors the most and he gives details, specific stories about senior citizens and the kind of pain that they might feel in their pocketbooks. >> right. to avoid taking money in the pocket, they have this thing called medicare advantage. in medicare advantage, my mom actually has it, it's a tremendous boom and people are protective of it. they're allowed to go to private insurance and have them cover themselves. right now, they're going to tax that. won't that work be countederproductive to medicare advantage? there's no advantage. >> apparently, it will impose a tax on medicare, medicaid, the children's health insurance program, chip, and tricare which is for families of military dependents because they -- and because these particular plans have no profits to absorb the tax or pass it on, they'll have only one option and that is bob dole writes, to reduce health care services and that is bad. >> and we should point out that bob dole does say that
current state. >> a lot of what was being proposed between the half a trillion of medicare cuts, the cuts potentially for veterans and looking at the higher taxes, almost a one size fits all program, is not good for massachusetts. >> reporter: so in a sense after more than half a year of single minded focus on health care reform, the democrats now find themselves back at scare one practically, though they say they're still committed to passing something this year. >> nancy cordes on capitol hill. thank you very much. >>> also in washington this morning is howard dean, former chairman of the democratic national committee. dr. dean, how are you this morning? >> i'm very well, thank you. >> is health care dead? >> i don't think so. i think the american people want health care reform. what they didn't want was something that was written by the insurance industries. and this is a very washington-centered proposal that finally came over to the house. so i think they'll try again, put something in there that the american people want. the american people really do want us to do something about th
it. you know, i've come on with you guys and i think we should have been much clearer about medicare. we understand how it works. it was a democratic initiative. this expanded five years or something like that. >> but, for instance, medicare for all. >> yeah. i mean, i think that that has been messaged very well and i also think let the senate and housework its will, that by definition is an unclear thing and muddled and the like. i also think something else. look, we're doing tough things. you're doing health care no matter who did it you're going to take a lot of lumps for it. i think you can critique how it's done, but there's no doubt the president is trying to solve the problems of the american people. the problem we have, this reminds us more of 1993. the president is doing incrementally good things but we in congress are taking our lumps every step of the way. and i also think when people who are against things are always more animated than people who are for things. there's a lot of headwinds. i don't want to do a postmortem until there's a mortem. >> this could be new hampsh
, is laughable. medicare for all, is what should be on the table. instead, this has been diluted. mostly by lobbyists and by obstructionist democrats, too. the deal that labor got is good for all middle-class americans. middle-class americans who have been shafted in the last eight years under bush and cheney. >> not in unions. >> it cuts across. and the clean, simple thing, george, which would raise your hair on end, is if there was a surcharge on the wealthy. i believe the wealthy in this country could afford to pay a little more. and it shouldn't be a burden on the middle class. these aren't cadillac benefits. these are chevy, if that. >> you get the boldness award for defending the indefensible. there's many part of the bill that can defend. but to defend the car bout for the obama key campaign contributors. >> i admire boldness. >> i support the middle-class. >> there's one more deal that i wanted to talk about. we're not going to have time. you have to talk about it in the green room. that's the contentious deal between nbc, jay leno, and conan o'brien. >>> you can get political up
with its medicare cuts and tax hikes. and if there's a sweetheart deal that needs to be cut, democrats will cut it. and if there's a vote that needs to be bought, they'll buy it. haven't we had enough of government propped up on payoffs and pork barrel spending? haven't we had enough of the same old us versus them politics that uses yesterday's battles to distract us from today's problems? we're all in this together and need positive forward-looking solutions to bring us together. >> boehner also says the democratic health plan is something families just can't afford and want nothing to do with. >>> haitians are saying their good-byes to the catholic bishop at port-au-prince. he died last week in the earthquake. archbishop timothy dolan and vatican's ambassador to haiti joined about 1,000 mourners in a park across the street from the ruins of the city's cathedral. the ceremony also doubled as a funeral for vicar charles benoit who died in the disaster. >>> if you give money to help the victims of the haiti earthquake, you can write off your charitable donations in this year's return, t

's deficit will double it. at the same time that medicare is going bankrupt, social security going bankrupt. medicaid is upside down. this is a nightmare. >> well, first -- >> the bigger crisis is medicare. >> we have had creative accounting and self-dealing going on for a long time. the fed purchases a significant majority of all u.s. debt last year. we have a situation where the housing entities are not being consolidated. they have huge losses. people saying they are doing things to try and help reduce medicare costs, but they are spending the money someplace else. all kinds of creating accounting and self-dealing going on. >> we'll go to chris tnctie in minute. i was struck by the creative accounting. they were making up trillions. you wrote a story mid summer about the fdic created $1 trillion out of thin air by a bureaucratic trick. this creative accounting makes our situation so much worse. >> it does. and, frankly, actually, that decision by the fdic at the time has in a way come back to haunt us. i don't know if you recall at the end of this year, the fdic was almost bankrupt and h
but i'm certainly not in favor of higher taxes, cutting medicare half a trillion, affecting medical coverage for veterans and basically having a one size fits all. so i know what i don't want. now i'm looking forwarding to reading the bills and coming up with a plan because if it's something the president feels is important, i'm certainly willing to look at it. >> brown also met today with senator john mccain of arizona. fellow republican mccain, the 2008 presidential nominee. he was an early backer of brown early this year endorsing him in his campaign bid and mccain praised the new senator. take a listen. >> senator brown represents, i think, the dreams and the hopes and the frustrations that americans feel today, and they want the kind of leadership that the commonwealth of massachusetts just sent us. i'm pleased to have been an early supporter, even though a bit foolish at the time. i am very proud of his success. he won his campaign because of who he is, primarily, first of all, the individual that he is that knows how to communicate with the people of his state. >> that's just
internationally. medicare. it doesn't cover everything. >>> tonight, reports of growing tension in the world of late night tv. conan o'brien apparently is not rushing to sign off on a plan to bump his show to midnight and move jay leno back into the 11:30 time slot, accord together "new york times" which reports the nbc standoff smells like a real opportunity for the network's competitors. leno joked about the possible switcheroo last night. take a look. >> i don't think there's any truth to the rumors. nbc only cancels you when you're in first place so we're fine. actually, you know what happened? nbc found four guns in my locker. and the justice daeptdepartment announced they will discuss the merge with nbc anti-trust review which is the relationship i have with nbc, anti-trust. there's an anti-trust. yeah. >> joining me right now is sharon waxman, editor in chief of therap.com and john ridley, a friend of our show. hi to both of you. sharon everyone is buzzing about this, you at the rap are reporting that fox may actually be interested in conan. what's the latest? tell us what you know. >
